I've configured CloudWatch billing alarms and alerts to notify me when my billing reaches a certain threshold. How long after my billing reaches that threshold will my billing alert be sent to me?

Billing information for your AWS account is updated several times per day. When your billing information is updated, if the threshold for your billing is above the amount you set in your billing alarm, you will be notified, usually within approximately 5 minutes.
